Cape Girardeau launches new outdoor sculpture walking tour

Have you noticed the new, bright, bold sculptures along Broadway in Cape Girardeau?

They are all a part of of the city's fourth public art outdoor sculpture exhibition put on by the Public Art Committee of the City of Cape Girardeau.

This year's show features artists from all over the country.

You're encouraged to walk along Broadway and engage with each piece. In one case, you may even want to climb on top.

Take a stroll down Broadway and enjoy the new art in downtown Cape Girardeau.

The exhibit launched on Thursday, April 6.

It consists of seven pieces placed along the Broadway Corridor. They will stand in place for one year.

The public art committee hopes the exhibit will help accomplish two goals: increase the number of arts-related activities within the region and provide another way to revitalize Old Town Cape.
